Bergen County Food & Wine 

Bergen County’s Biggest celebration of food, liquor, and everything delicious.

The first annual Bergen County Food & Wine Festival, benefitting The 200 Club of Bergen County, was an idea bloomed from seeing many other areas throughout the country celebrate their culinary prowess. As one of the most affluent, culturally diverse counties in the country, it was only a matter of time before an event of this magnitude was carried out in Bergen County, NJ.

Brisket King NYC

When the weather starts to warm up, it’s time to start planning what barbecue events you should head to in the spring and summer. One of my favorite events of the year, Brisket King NYC, is one such festival that you should have on your calendar and an important staple in the NYC BBQ community.

Brisket King NYC 2022 will bring together 20 restaurants and pitmasters from New York, New Jersey, and around the country. Held in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the event will also feature beer, wine, and spirits as well.
